Excellent Ambiance, Average food

This is my second visit to Lighthouse. I returned due to the ambiance which is excellent and am sure will go again next time I am in Pondicherry. You can hear the sea, feel the breeze. But the food was very average, none of our group enjoyed their food. Hope they improve it

great place to spend a lazy sunday afternoon. eat all you can, drink to your hearts content and if the weather permits sit in the open area and enjoy the lovely view. do make reservations in advance and choose your table too.

In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment.
